This recipe is reputed to be from Chan Wah-Shun and then Ng Jung So. Chan Wah-Shun nicknamed the “Moneychanger” was a very powerful man and one of the best Wing Chun fighters trained by Leung Jan.
Chan Wah-Shun’s last student was Yip Man “The Grandmaster”.
Wing Chun Dit Da Jow warms up and brings energy to the area it is applied to, increasing the movement of Qi so there is less opportunity for bruises and contusions to occur when practicing contact drills or sparring.
Practicing on the wooden dummy Muk Yan Jong to learn the concepts of Wing Chun can cause your arms, hands and legs to take a beating. Wing Chun Dit Da Jow applied prior to working on the Muk Yan Jong will enhance your workout and help prevent serious bruising afterwards.
Apply Wing Chun Dit Da Jow after before and after training helps to prevent serious bruising and to toughen up the area. With constant application and practice your bruising and pain slowly disappear. Since this formula is a warm to hot formula and it promotes the movement of Qi it is ideal for situations that require a lot of circulation, and blood flow like the contact drills in Wing Chun.
These drills are constantly challenging the skin, bone, muscles and connective tissues of the hand, arms and legs to become tougher and stronger while at the same time keeping the acupuncture points in the hand open so energy can flow through the hand into the target.
Dit Da Jow is also used to help healing bruises, sprains and other conditions such as sprains, arthritis, fibromyalgia, poor circulation, muscle pain, and shin splints.
